What are we learning?

In English…

In English, we will be reading, ‘I survived the San Francisco Earthquake, 190’ by Lauren Tarshis. We will be writing a setting description.

In Maths…

In Maths, pupils will look at fractions. The children will develop their ability to handle more diverse problems involving fractions, including dividing and multiplying fractions by whole numbers.

In Science…

Our unit is Science ‘Forces and Magnets’. Children will consolidate and extend their knowledge of forces by naming individual forces (e.g. gravity, friction, upthrust). They will extend their knowledge of frictional forces (air resistance and water resistance) and plan fair test investigations to discover which shoe has the greatest friction and which shapes o­ffer the most water resistance. They will learn how forces can be helpful and unhelpful in various scenarios and identify the forces involved in each scenario. They will learn what a mechanism is and how pulleys, levers and gears are used to allow a smaller force to have a greater e­ffect.


In RE…

Our RE unit is ‘Jesus the teacher’.  The children will consider carefully the messages of the parables and how they impact on the lives of practising Christians.

In Topic…

In topic, our primary focus is Geography. We will explore ‘Which are more dangerous: earthquakes or volcanoes?’
